Sharon was born on June 1, 1955, in Louisville to her loving parents, the late Edith McNeely Marsh and the late Ralph Marsh. Being very industrious, she worked at Franklin Department Store during her high school years, which showcased her strong work ethic. After graduating from Louisville Academy in 1973, Sharon started working at Jefferson Hospital. It was during this time that fate intervened and she crossed paths with the love of her life. Their marriage on October 1, 1977 marked the beginning of a beautiful journey together.
In the early 1980s, Sharon and Tony made their home in the close-knit Moxley Community as they embraced the joy of starting a family. Their daughter, Brandy, brought immeasurable happiness into their lives. As Brandy began attending school, Sharon joined the team at Bank of Wadley (now Queensborough) as a bank teller, dedicating an impressive twenty years to her role and becoming an integral part of the community.
Sharon found immense fulfillment within the walls of her home. A superb cook and, in her younger years, a talent for keeping an immaculate house, she exuded warmth and made everyone who visited feel welcome. Her culinary creations were a testament to her love for her family and friends.
Apart from being an exceptional homemaker, Sharon possessed a remarkable artistic talent. She had a passion for drawing and oil painting that allowed her to express herself creatively. These artistic endeavors were not just hobbies but reflections of her inner world.
Sharon was not one for large crowds; instead, she found solace and comfort in smaller group settings where meaningful connections could be forged. At home, surrounded by her loved ones, she found true contentment.
Sharon’s faith played a significant role in guiding her throughout her life, and she cherished her Lord and Savior deeply. She had an unconditional love for her family which knew no bounds. Sharon's granddaughters, Katelyn and Brooklyn, held a special place in her heart, filling it with boundless love and joy.
In addition to her parents, Sharon is also preceded in death by her two brothers, Walter Marsh and Donnie Marsh. Those left to cherish her memory include her loving husband, Tony M. Colvin; her beloved daughter, Brandy Hiebert (Joel); her two granddaughters, Katelyn Hughes (Jake) and Brooklyn Hiebert; sister, Marie Stevens; other extended family and friends.

Sharon’s legacy is one of dedication, love, and steadfastness. She touched the lives of many through her hard work, artistic abilities, and profound care for others. As we celebrate a life lived with grace, devotion and an unwavering love for family, her memory will forever remain in the hearts of those who had the pleasure of knowing her.
